The set contains four sheets, one containing the black serials, one the white serials, while the biggest contains the distinctive orange triangles, and various other colour details such as yellow fuselage bands. Some smaller black or white registries are found on this sheet as well. Finally, a small sheet contains squadron badges for the Brewster Bufallo and service markings for the Curtiss Hawk.

A lot of care has been put in research. Not only you can choose a large number of subjects, if you want, there are enough triangles to make several Buffalo’s, Hawks or Interceptors. The decals are printed on very thin carrier film and are easily applied, with hardly any decal softener needed. Finishing your model with matt coat should result in a perfect result!

Packaging is well arranged in a zipper bag, instructions are clear and in full colour.

Definitely recommended!

The decals can be ordered directly at the Flevo decals website – check out their decals in scales 1/72, 1/48 and 1/32
